Attention Pollution

I found 2 articles to juxtapose today: one about our decision on where to place our attention, and the other on a truly insidious way that our relationship with nature may be deteriorating: through our language.

“If you think about it, our attention is the only thing we truly own in our lives. Our possessions can go away. Our bodies can be compromised. Our relationships can fall apart. Even our memories and intellectual capacity fade away.

But the simple ability to choose what to focus on — that will always be ours.”
